The Leadership Tales Podcast with Colin Hunter

I have created this podcast so that we can indulge ourselves in learning how some amazing people have overcome challenges, and failures to achieve in their roles as leaders.  

My name is Colin Hunter, will you join me on this fascinating voyage through all things “Leadership”?

Your host

I am fascinated by people and how they have used Leadership in their journeys to success.

The Leadership Tales Podcast is hosted by me, Colin Hunter.  I am an author, coach, mentor and the CEO of PotentialSquared – a Leadership Development company based in the UK.  My life-long passion is to amplify the “human” in Leadership.  I try to do this by creating measurable playgrounds to disrupt the way people are led.

Be More Wrong

Relearning failure as a valuable outcome makes for an outstanding and successful leader. Building from your insecurities is essential to leadership. But, that’s easier said than done.

What if you could build a workplace culture that was less like a classroom, and more like a playground: a place filled with opportunities to take risks and test boundaries, with soft ground on which to fall? A place where you and your team are free to make mistakes and get things wrong―a place where it’s okay to fail?
